About the author

Clare Youngs studied graphic design and worked in packaging design, illustration, and book jacket design, before deciding to turn her attentions to craft full-time. Clare’s other books include Book Art, which has sold over 13,000 copies, Wall Art, Mobile Art, A Year in Crafts, Letter Art, Make Your Own Woodland Creatures, Folk Art Needlecraft and Scandinavian Needlecraft (all published by CICO Books). She is based in Kent, UK.

Treat your home as your canvas and adorn your walls with hangings, paintings, stencils, papercrafts, tapestries, plants, and more. Make a geometric work of art using silver and copper leaf and turn your collection of vintage ephemera into a gallery wall in your living room, using simple handmade box frames. Wall Art will show you how to decorate a child’s bedroom with a jumping hare made of washi tape and how to weave a group of little, Aztec-inspired wall hangings to bring a touch of texture to a bare wall. Update your interiors with these innovative, contemporary projects, some of which can be created in an afternoon. You’ll have a great time making a beautiful shadow box inspired by Scandinavian folk art, a delicate macrame wall hanging that will transform any space, and a giant shining firefly that will really make an impact. All you need to do is find a bare wall and get started!
